Our new house!

We have worked so hard on our new house. We bought a grandma house. It is well taken care of and most big ticket items are newer (water heater, furnace, A/C, siding, roof). We also got all of the appliances which are new for the most part. We are absolutely in love with this house but the only problem was major cosmetic issues. It was built in 1981 and it had the original paint, carpet, and light fixtures. We went to work making it look updated. We painted every room in the house, put in all new carpet, put in new kitchen flooring, put in new kitchen cabinet hardware, replaced most of the light fixtures, took out all the blinds and put in new window treatments, updated some of the landscaping, and between this year and next year will have a new patio and lawn installed. After all the work we have done it looks like a completely different house. We are so excited to have made it ours. We can really appreciate it because we know where it started off compared to how it looks now! So here are some before and after photos of the kitchen, living room, our bedroom, sun room (Cameron's play room), and Cameron's bedroom. The before photos are the photos used in the online listings.

Amazing what new paint, carpet, furniture, and a bit of elbow grease can do, isn't it? Josh and I are so proud of our new home. We absolutely love it and Cameron has so much more room to grow. Her room is so much bigger, she has her own play room, and the living room is much more kid friendly since we switched our coffee table for a big soft ottoman. Also, Penny is loving it! She has a huge fenced in back yard! She couldn't be happier about that. So anyways, I hope you enjoyed the transformation photos!

  1. Deciding for a home remodeling project isn't an easy decision. You need to consider many things, like the construction work, the timeframe, and the budget. But I admire you. You were able to pull it off despite the challenges of home remodeling. It's always great when you are able to transform your home to a better place to live in. :)
